Former NFL star Adam “Pacman” Jones called BS on his alleged terroristic threats and alcohol intoxication charges, and he went off on reporters after asking them if he looked drunk.
Pacman Jones was arrested at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport in response to a report of an “unruly passenger.”
Airport spokesperson Mindy Kershner said police were called at 6 A.M. to help an outbound flight crew with an unruly passenger. She identified the passenger as Jones, and he was arrested before takeoff.
According to Boone County Jail Capt. Kevin Klute, Jones was booked on misdemeanor charges of alcohol intoxication, disorderly conduct, and terroristic threatening. He was released a few hours later.
After his release, Jones told reporters from “WLWT-TV” who were waiting in the parking lot, that his charges were BS.
He said the whole incident was over a phone charger not working and him asking a flight attendant to be moved to another seat because he needed to charge his iPad before he reached his destination.
…Cause I bought the two seats because I’m going somewhere.
And so, she like, ‘Well, if you want to move we got to turn around the plane.’
I’m like, ‘I don’t want you to turn around the plane, but I want to use the plug because I bought two seats.’
Turn around the plane, we’ll get the body camera, so they called me off the plane, don’t say nothing wrong, they lock me up.
And here we are now.
The reporters then question Pacman about the terroristic threats and intoxication.
He called BS on the terroristic threats and asked the reporters if he looked intoxicated to them.
Do I look intoxicated to you? I only been locked up for two hours. Do I look intoxicated to you?
I’m asking you a question. Do I look intoxicated to you Ma’am?
The reporter responded she didn’t know because she doesn’t know what he looks like normally.
Jones tried to explain that he would not be drunk driving to the airport 5 A.M. in the morning.
After not getting any resolution from the female reporter, Jones asked the male reporter if he looked drunk, and he responded, ‘Sir, I don’t know… I can’t say yes or no… I don’t know.”
Adam “Pacman” Jones played in the NFL for 12 seasons, primarily with the Cincinnati Bengals (2010-2017), and he also played with the Tennessee Titans (2005-2007), Dallas Cowboys (2008), and Denver Broncos (2018).
He was an All-Pro defensive back and a return specialist.
